Re: Amazon Echo or Google Home Which will access YouTube?

I read that Amazon restricts access to YouTube, because it competes with
their Amazon video service.

How do I tell Alexa to play the sound from the video show?

Example, if I ask her to play Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, she plays the
song and not the CBS show.

Sincerely, Vicky

As the Echo Dot accesses the internet to retrieve the information which is
given the user, I would feel certain that she could access Youtube and play
a video from there, or at least the audio from a video. An exact video may
not be able to be played, but on which address a particular subject should
be doable.

Hi Everyone,

As I wrote last week, I bought my friend an Amazon Echo Dot.

My cousin set it up for him using my IPhone because he owns neither a
computer nor smartphone, or other kind of tablet.

He really wants to listen to YouTube videos of Indian music and movies; is
there a way for Alexa to access that?

Or, should I return this to Best Buy and buy him a Google Home device.

Please advise.

Note: I only check this email address on the weekends; my regular email
address is

Thanks, and have a happy holiday season.

Hi Mary,
I am a Kurzweil user, and remember your name from the former group.
This kindle thing is for a dr. friend of mine who has recently become
blind. I am teaching him how to use jaws with his computer, but I
think he would be really interested in the fire tablet. What more do
you know about it? You can write me off list at jazzpiano@ca.rr. Com.

Hi Jim,
Yes, you can certainly use the Kindle on a PC with either Jaws or NVDA.
The support has gotten much better in the last couple of months. And yes,
you can also use some of the Kindle e-reader's. Those are the devices that
are made just for reading books. Otherwise, the cheapest alternative is to
purchase a Kindle fire tablet. That lets you re-kindle books and also do
other things. And right now, those tablets are on a good deal of Amazon.
The cheapest one is the fire seven and I think it's $30 right now. The HD
eight is $50, and the HD 10 is $100 for the les expensive device. Aside from
size, the major difference that would concern us would be the fact that both
theeight and the 10 have two speakers, and they sound better than the seven.
Also the 10 has a newer processor and more storage space, although all of
them come with a card slot. I don't have personal experience using the E
readers, but I know that some of them can be used.

Hi all,
I don't have a kindle reader now, but I am thinking about getting one.
Is there a standalone kindle reader that I can get that I wouldn't
have to use my computer with it? If not that, how does one use the
kindle with a P"C? Jim _disanceaounddancea_ Links:
